Waking From the Dream of i

“Once awakened from the dream of separation, the awakened soul can once again celebrate its most divine dance with God.”

Our fears and anxieties are the imaginings of the dreamed self that feels itself separate from the one divine consciousness.

When we awaken the unified Soul Self beyond that dreamed separate self, the construct of the dream crumbles and all the conditioning that was built within the dream falls away with it.

When you’re dreaming at night and in the dream you’re being chased by a tiger, it seems very real and you experience fear within the dream.

When you awaken in the morning into an “awake” consciousness, the dream fades away.  And with it, the fears , anxieties, confusions and other emotional states that were a part of the dream, fade away as well.

The same is true as we awaken from the dreamed or constructed self that we have created in our mind.  It seems so real.  But when we awaken to the truth of our soul and the love that moves through our soul, the constructed and conditioned dream of self fades away.  And with it goes the fears, anxieties, confusions, doubts, and emotional wounds that belong only to that dreamed self.

Your fears and anxieties are not authentic to your imperishable soul.  They belong only to the self you have dreamed into being in your own mind.

Within the stillness and presence of meditation, we can point our awareness to, and thus awaken, the true and eternal Self.  With the true Self awakened, we no longer need to continue dreaming a self into being.

Let go of you and discover the True You.

Let go of you and discover the True You.

Let go of you and discover the True You.

This video is from Satsang, April 28, 2019, a day after my 58th birthday. The aliveness of peace and surrender was flowing with such abundance.

This Satsang is primarily about surrender.

It is about surrendering all our ideas of self… Completely.  So that we may discover the imperishable self that can never truly be lost.

This faith of surrender is one of the hardest things you’ll ever do.

And yet it offers one of the greatest freedoms you will ever know.

Typically there is a panic that can accompany this depth of surrender.  But not to worry.  You won’t lose the true self. You cannot lose what you truly are. You can only discover a deeper truth of you.

Like throwing wheat into the air and letting the wind carry away the chaff…

Throw all thoughts and images and concepts of you up into the air and let all that is not truly you be carried away.

Your soul will remain.

Welcome home.

 

Struggle

I sometimes use the word “suffering” to describe the human condition that can result from being over identified with the ego-mind. I often speak about transcending the human suffering or being liberated from our suffering.

For some that is too strong a word and they can’t relate. They don’t feel that an experience as strongly described as “suffering” is present in their life. Perhaps the suffering has become so normalized within the human condition that it no longer seems like suffering.

For me, “suffering” is synonymous with stuck, trapped, confined, unnecessarily limited, held down and other such conditions that inhibit living in full and vibrant expression of True Self.

But if “suffering” doesn’t quite resonate perhaps there’s another related condition that might. I would wager that for most there is some resonance with a sense of Struggle.

In a typical life there is often some degree of emotional, mental or spiritual struggle that would love to find some resolution. It is the mind that struggles. The struggle of the mind may manifest as a sensation within the body. But the genesis of the feeling is the struggle of the mind.
